Your body depends upon B-12 for promoting normal energy levels and immune function, sound sleep, mental alertness, heart health, cell growth and repair, and normal metabolism.* Without enough B-12, your body struggles to convert the carbohydrates and fats you eat into fuel for energy.* Your circulation, adrenal hormone production, nervous system health, positive mood, memory, and mental clarity are all potentially at risk when you run low on Vitamin B-12.* As you age, your body loses its ability to absorb B-12.
VitaSorb™ B-12 Fast Dissolves deliver 10,000 mcg of Vitamin B-12 to support energy production and a healthy nervous system in a great tasting cherry flavored tablet with VitaSorb™ technology to help promote fast absorption.*

- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
